MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – West Virginia women’s basketball player Liz Repella was chosen by a media committee from a list of 60 candidates to advance as a finalist for the 2011 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award.
Ten NCAA women’s student-athletes, who excel both on and off the court, were selected as finalists for the award. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to determine the winner. Fans are encouraged to vote via the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award website or on the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award Facebook fan page through March 20. Fan votes will be combined with media and coaches votes to determine the winner.
Lowe’s, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, will announce the women’s winner at the NCAA Women’s Final Four® in Indianapolis.
